THE head of the armed branch of Palestinian radical movement Islamic Jihad in the West Bank region of Nablus was killed early today by the Israeli army, Palestinian security sources said.
Hamad Abu Sharif, chief of the Al Qods Brigades, was shot dead by troops in the old town of Nablus in the north of the West Bank, they said.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the death of an armed activist, saying: "Soldiers operating in the old town opened fire on armed men killing one of them."
Two members of a Palestinian militant group, the Popular Resistance Committees, had been killed in an Israeli air strike early yesterday.
Israeli and Palestinian sources said that the pair, implicated in the firing of rockets, had been targeted in the Khan Yunis area of southern Gaza.
Palestinian medical sources said that two teenagers were also shot dead during a big Israeli army raid on a refugee camp near Nablus.
The latest killing raised the overall toll since the September 2000 start of the Palestinian uprising to 4960, four-fifths of them Palestinians, according to an AFP count.
Stop Jihad Now!
Israel, defend yourself as the need arises.

Don't Mess With Texas.....or the Israelis!
Nice, now they just need to get the next scum!
You've really gotta wonder what would posess a person to chose death by these means, than to get or create a job and create a life for themselves.
Now I realize that there is a shortage of jobs in the West Bank and Gaza, but there's really only one group to blame for that. The Jihadist yahoos who couldn't think their way out of a paper bag have opted to prevent a good business climate on in the Palestinian territories.
How stupid is that? And how stupid are the people who can't see it?
Jihad Johnny rules the day, and Israel gets the blame. Typical.
Keep the good news coming!
One more down, many more to go.
Why does Israel only go after them one by one ?
Seems to me hunting terrorists in the palestinian area would be like hunting fish in a barrel.
"Islamic Jihad leader killed"
The world is already a better place.
DURKA DURKA DURKA! GOOD NEWS!
But,but... I heard he represents the "Religion of Peace" How mean of those Israelis! /sarc tag if really needed.
Keep killing them until they can't reproduce any more. Islamists are the only species that can and certainly should be rendered "extinct". Their's is coming.
